Ok. So, I have a saved map of my plans for Saturday on it. It's in "My Maps" on Google maps.

Is there a way to link that map (as in attach it to the calendar event, not just paste a link in the details) to the calendar event I have for Saturday in my Google Calendar?

I don't think it's possible, but I figured I'd ask before requesting a feature from Google.

:)

Update:

I have found this Link on the Google help forums. From the looks of the date and response on that thread, my outlook is not looking good...

I just don't think there's enough use cases. It's like Gmail and the selection checkbox. –  digitxp Oct 16 '10 at 3:02
    
Really? I feel like I would use this feature all the time, but I guess Google needs more than just me to use a feature for them to write it. :) –  EJC Oct 19 '10 at 14:27

Per this Google Calendar help link there is at least a way to link a map location to an event, though it is not exactly what you want to do, it's close.

When you fill in the "Where" field on the "Create Event" page, Google Calendar will create a link to a Google Map search result. To ensure an accurate result, please enter a full address, including city and state.

Note: The "map" link won't appear until you save the event.

I tested this and it works -- you must enter a mappable address in the location field, then after you save the map, a map link will appear on the event:

I suggest:

Make a google map and include a link to it in your description of the event

Describe the location of your event by a name and GPS coordinates e.g.

Miller Room 221 Rockefeller Bldg. Case Western Reserve University @41.503512,-81.6076
